Regarding #2
Correct. However, you can configure separate notifications with some 3rd-party launchers (e.g., Apex Pro, Nova, ADW EX). The notifications via this method will appear as iPhone-style (i.e., a number in a notification balloon, superimposed on a corner of the app icon). To make it work, you have to enable notification in the launcher and disable system notification for that app:
Settings > Manage apps (select the "All" tab, scroll to the app in question and uncheck "Show notifications")
Help yourself while helping me: Sign up with Dropbox and we both get 250MB extra space. Thanx!
